Here is another installment of "A Dozen Divots", which will take a closer look at the University of North Dakota men's golf team. This session's featured player is junior Jack McClintock.

Where are you from and what do you like most about your hometown?
"I grew up in Rugby, N.D. I like the small town vibe, where you know everyone and they know you. The whole town is really supportive of kids who leave after high school for college sports. And of course, it's the center of North America so that's unique."

When did you start playing golf and who got you started playing the game?
"I think I was about four or five and my dad would take me out with him. He would only take me to the range until I was older and ready for the course." 

What is the favorite course you have played?
"Quintero Golf Club in Peoria, Ariz."

What is your dream foursome and on what course would you want to play?
"Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and myself at Augusta National."

Who is your favorite professional golfer and why?
"Rickie Fowler. He really cares about his fans and goes out of his way to connect with them via social media."

What are your hobbies outside of golf?
"Hunting, fishing and going to the lake." 

What is your major and career aspirations?
"My major is business management and I'd like to go into the banking industry."

What is your go-to club in your golf bag?

If you’re playing alternate shot, who from the team do you want driving on your team, who do you want putting and who do you want hitting an approach shot?
Driving: Daniel Sayler
Approach: Patrick Traynor
Putting: Jeremy Kirk

How many hole-in-ones (descriptions if so) or describe your most memorable hole out?
"No hole-in-one's for me, but I do have an Albatross (double-eagle) on a par-5 back at my home course in Rugby."

If you were not playing collegiate golf, is there another sport you would want to play in college?

What’s your nickname most used by teammates?
"Jack or Jackson.  My given name is John."
